I was falsely accused of 376,420 - the false promise of marriage by my ex-girlfriend. The case was quashed by the high court. Right now I am planning to change my job to a reputed MNC. Should I disclose the case? They have never asked me about it or I haven't signed any form asking about the case.

When the criminal proceedings in the lower Court is quashed by the High Court, the entire criminal charges become automatically non-est. In addition since no information was required by the MNC in this regard, the poster need not make any mention about it.

They are planning to run a background check by some private agencies. I am not sure what are the scope for that. Do they look for convictions or dismissed cases also ?

The agency that conducts the BGV on behalf of the MNC would and in fact as a matter of professional sincerity should certainly bring the quashed criminal case to their client. But I don't think that the MNC, as the employer, would consider it negatively. By the by ,what's your marital status now?

Married ..Does it matter ? Can they deny the job ? The allegations are serious even if they are dismissed

Dear John,
Whether the allegations are serious or trivial, once the entire criminal proceedings stand quashed by the High Court, the initiation of the case on such false allegations becomes non-est. And now you are married too. Probably, your girl friend might have mistaken your friendly relationship with her as love. As such, either to prevent your marriage with some one else or to extract some pecuniary benefits from you, she might have lodged a false complaint against you and influenced the police to register FIR and eventually the could have been filed against you in the Criminal Court. But once it is quashed in its entirety, how do the allegations stand against your morality or adversely affect your conduct and character. No educated person can think like during this era of modernity? Certainly no HR in an MNC would be so ignorant.

Hi Umakanthan,
Thank you very much for your kind words. The false case was registered to stop my marriage as u said. Hope, the HR has similar thought process like yours.
Most of the time people are ignorant about misuse of law and hopefully I don't have to prove myself innocent infront of HR.

As the criminal case is quashed against you, there is no reason to volunteer to provide the information of the matter to the MNC you are joining. However, in case any query comes about it, you have to disclose the full facts about it. It will be helpful in getting your credibility as an ethical person.

No issue...
Even though it was not quashed ...The company is no way concerned with your personal life... Go ahead... If you have to attend the court take permission and go... Until u r cleanchit by the law of the land in public court. Please remind that even though it was quashed it will be reopened later times by the police dept. As u have not aquitted after regular trial in the open court it was only quashed on the further proceeds by the police on the complaint .
Any how some relief got.
So go as usual.

@ Gannahope, normally quashing is done by highcourt or supremecourt. Once the case is quashed means the case is dismissed. This happens when the case is absolutely false. This means that you are acquitted.
It is infact better than acquittal.

Only supreme court can reopen the case but it has a time limit of 3 months which is already passed.
